I teach at a Title I school in Texas in an area effected by Harvey. Many of my students are in single parent households and receive a free or reduced lunch due to their socioeconomic status. Many of my students do not have the opportunity to take part in multiple social environments. Limited opportunities for my students to be exposed to different social settings hinders them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences needed to get ahead in today's fast paced society.

We all know that social interaction plays a large part in our daily lives.

Due to the lack of collaborative learning environment setups within our schools it is difficult to set our students up for success. This is why I want to provide my students with a flexible, action based, technologically accesible classroom. Giving them innovative technology and furniture to not only grow technologically, but collaboratively as well. I may not be able to control what happens outside school, but I can certainly control their experiences while they are in my classroom. Finding new ways to integrate collaborative grouping within my classroom will certainly help my students to continue on a path of academic excellence. I heard a quote over this summer, "Don't let your condition become your conclusion," and I believe with the right resources to help my students I can!

"your condition is not your conclusion."”
